Why Gabrielle Union didn't want to host a ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ screening

"Me and my husband saw "Crazy Rich Asians" the book at the airport, we put it on social media and the company that's putting out "Crazy Rich Asians" was like, 'Will you guys do a screening?'" she said on Wednesday.

She graced the elegant event in a yellow classic modern Filipiniana by young Filipino designer Michael Leyva.

Kris Aquino walks at the red carpet for the premiere of "Crazy Rich Asians" in Hollywood. It is too bad that the dress overwhelms and takes away the focus from her glittery necklace.

"This was the reason we made the effort to be here....it is my honor to proudly represent the Philippines", wrote Aquino having been deeply moved by the Filipino crowd. "Maraming salamat po sa effort n'yo to show your love & support!"

Briton stranded in Dubai after he was caught speeding 33 times
Farah racked up the fines in less than four hours last Tuesday after setting off every speed camera on the Sheikh Zayed Road. The auto is now still parked outside FIVE Palm Jumeirah, the address given by the tourist when he rented the vehicle .

In an earlier post made the same day, Aquino shared on her Instagram page another video clip, this time of her wearing five different gowns.

Emily Yoshida from Vulture: "Crazy Rich Asians is, at its heart, a fish-out-of-water story, and it has a lot more going for it than its literal money shots".

Wu, who plays Rachel Chu, the film's heroine, arrived to the premiere clad in a sparkling, embellished silver Ralph & Russo couture gown with an off-the-shoulder neckline and fringed sleeves. The tart tone has been replaced with a sweeter, more rom-com-friendly one, and my own favorite character, the glamorous Astrid (Gemma Chan), has been given so little screen time that you wonder why she's even there at all.

She plays the role of Malay royalty, Princess Intan, in the American romantic comedy-drama film based on Kevin Kwan's "Crazy Rich Asians" trilogy. Rachel, a New Yorker, has never been to Asia when Nick invites her there to meet his family, and she's dazzled by the breathtaking scenery, the lovingly photographed and prepared food, the luxurious abundance of the real estate - and by Nick's imperious mother, Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh), who quickly makes it clear that she disapproves of Rachel.
